#1: The confluence

(visited by Aristotelis Bletsas)

05-Oct-2003 -- I had submitted a plan for first visiting this confluence between 14/9-19/10. In the meantime another confluence fun and hunter visited it. Firstly I was disappointed and found no meaning in visiting it as a second visitor. With a second thought, I decided to stay on my plan and enjoy the “hunting”.

My mother-to-be wife, her family and I composed the team. We left my father-in-law’s home (Domokos town) at 7:30 a.m. and after driving about 130 Km, we managed to approach the confluence to a radial distance 1,1 km (9:45 a.m.). Since I don’t own an off road car, we had to leave it in a dirt road and continue on foot. The area toward our direction was full of bushes. We were following a rocky path that was becoming less and less visible. While we were 300 meters away from the point, we had to walk among briars, where no paths had ever been opened, not even by coats. Finally we reached the spot from North at 11:15 a.m. and there, we enjoyed our award; a wonderful view to a little gulf and Evvia Island.

That make me think that the true award of visiting a confluence, is the g r a t i f i c a t i o n ! No matter how many people visited it before; the satisfaction is always the same.
